Tarte Holiday 2014 – Pin Up Girl Blush Palette: Review & Swatches

Tarte Holiday 2014 Pin Up Girl Blush Palette
November is ending and there is probably about a month left for you to think of the presents you are going to get for Christmas for your friends and family members right? ūüėČ Well, if you have that one female friend who is¬†a blusher junkie, then this is the perfect gift for her – the Tarte Pin Up Girl Blush Palette!
Look at the beautiful lilac and gold details on the packaging! Isn’t it a sweet dream come true?
The palette comes in a rough, rusty-like and distressed gold fabric clutch¬†with lilac printed details which I highly dislike because it seems like it’s a clutch made for a little girl. Plus, the additional 2 gold pins do really make it seem like it’s a child’s play toy. I do love that the palette is gold but I just didn’t like the idea of the bulky and heavy clutch.
Housing 5 Amazonian 12-Hr Clay Blushers, this palette retails for only S$59, a pretty good value considering that all 5 are almost full-sized and a blush single would cost a whopping S$45 already. There is a variety of shades in this vintage palette, including:
  • Breathless – matte pinky beige
  • Embraced – satin-shimmery¬†plum rose
  • Whimsy – matte cool tone light¬†pink
  • Bashful –¬† satin-matte warm rosy peach-coral with a glistening gold reflect
  • Irreplaceable – matte mauvy rose
I would say, if you are a blush junkie, you better don’t miss out on this one unless you are banging on Tarte coming out with another¬†blush palette next year. I missed out on 2013’s Off the Cuff¬†which included its famous Park Ave. Princess bronzer and is housed in a sleeker packaging with a cuff bracelet, and I am regretting it already! So when I knew about this, I flew straight to the Sephora counter to grab myself one just¬†in case it runs out of stock and I am pretty happy with all 5 shades, especially Breathless because part of me gave up on the seemingly pale shade in its pan when I first landed my hands on this. When I swatched it, however, it turned out to be a beautiful shade that is good for contouring, especially for lighter skin tones!
I haven’t tested all the blushers yet but they are richly pigmented as with the usual Amazonian¬†Clay Blushers, probably a¬†teenie weenie bit¬†powdery for some shades. And I have to say it lasts for the entire day as well (when I was wearing Bashful and Whimsy).
I hope you like this mini review of the Holiday 2014 Blush Palette from Tarte and I will see you in my next review/post! Enjoy your holidays!
Create yourself and be gorgeous! ‚ô°
XOXO, Roanna.
